NYFW beauty report: Marc Jacobs

16 February 2010

The Show: Marc Jacobs

Where: NY state armoury
Everyone backstage is: Obsessing about the amazing buffet.  You thought the fash pack didn’t eat?  You were wrong!
The Scene: There are hardly any well-known model faces backstage at MJ.  Marc has specifically requested that this was the case.  The team did street casting again this season to find a lot of the girls.

The Look: Kate Moss inspired again! This Francois Nars tells us that time it’s ‘…a bit Kate Moss when she’s been out and kept on her make-up.’  It’s St Germain, East Village cool.  Genius. Eyeliner is black and lived-in, with a wash of grey and lavender shadow and the look is finished with a coral chapped lip.  Guido created the perfect length of hair which was either left down or tucked into clothes because ‘hair can’t be thrown behind clothes’ you know!
You’ll never guess what
: Marc chose the NARS Lipstick in Barbarella on a trip to Bloomingdales.

Overheard:  nail technician to nail technician: ‘She’s a non-model’… ‘What’s a non model?’… ‘That’s what they’re calling them you know!’

How-to Tip: Avoid brushes and use finger-tips to apply the eyeshadow when you want makeup with a lived in effect.

Secret Product Spot
: Five shades of CND nail varnish from nude to darkest griege to match each outfit.
